Characteristics of the Fish
The Pisces Zodiac Sign in Astrology
The Pisces horoscope sign, the Fish, is the twelfth sign of the Zodiac in the horoscope. It belongs to the element water and the mutable quality. The Pisces Zodiac sign is the seeker, searching for the meaning of life and path to happiness and fulfillment for all. It's a tedious quest, but Pisces is prepared for the sacrifice it demands.
The willingness of personal sacrifice is one of the major Pisces horoscope characteristics. Therefore, Pisces tends to be taken advantage of, more than once. It's a follower, as is every mutable sign in the horoscope, and it's very sensitive. But those are not weaknesses. The Pisces Zodiac sign is indifferent to privileges and benefits, because there are other things so much more important. It's a choice, alhtough others often don't see that.
The archetype of the Pisces Zodiac sign in the horoscope is the martyr, who is prepared to die, even when that's an injustice, for a higher cause. The most prominent of martyrs has for almost two thousand years been Jesus, who was crucified by an oppressive society wanting to stop his preaching.
Jesus, through the religion of Christianity, is also the one whose influence has been of the most vast importance for the last two thousand years, at least in Europe and the Western world. We're living in the Age of Pisces, an era dominated by the perspective of religion and the Pisces horoscope characteristics, which are praised as the most noble ones. It started around the time of the birth of Jesus, and will continue for something like 150 years, when it is followed by the Age of Aquarius.
So, Pisces may be the horoscope sign of self-sacrifice, but for the last two thousand years, this has been the highest virtue. Society has been one of the Pisces horoscope virtues (at least as the outspoken ideal), and still is.
Those with Pisces as their horoscope Zodiac sign are born with the sun in it, between February 19 and March 20. For more about the Pisces Zodiac sign and its meanings in the horoscope, see the links in the menu to the left.
Pisces Horoscope TraitsThe Pisces star sign begins when the winter is bitter and cold, but ends at the vernal equinox, the starting point of spring. Pisces is the horoscope sign of the humble seeker, with the traits of one who is always willing to make personal sacrifices for the good of others or society as a whole. To the Pisces Zodiac sign, society is a great body we all share, so any personal contribution to it will benefit everybody in it.

Pisces CompatibilityThe Pisces horoscope sign, the seeker, belongs to the element water, which is that of the emotions. So do Cancer and Scorpio, but that doesn't necessarily mean Pisces is particularly compatible with them - they need to share affection and a deeply felt attraction. Nor for that matter is the Pisces Zodiac sign always incompatible with, say, the fire signs Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius, although they are quite different.
All the astrological traits of each Zodiac sign have to be considered when examining their compatibility. Read more about what it means to the Pisces horoscope sign here:

Here's the 2013 astrological forecast for the Pisces Zodiac sign (and 2012, if you're still curious about it):
Pisces Sex HoroscopeThe horoscope also reveals what your sex life is like. That's not only done by the Zodiac sign, but also by the planets, astrological Houses, and aspects. I've made a whole section about how to track sexuality in the complete horoscope on my general astrology site:
Still, why not start with an introduction to the subject, by reading what the horoscope has to say about the sexuality and sexual preferences of those born in the Pisces Zodiac sign:
The Age of PiscesWe've all heard about the Age of Aquarius, a new astrological era that some say we've already entered. But we still live in the Age of the Pisces horoscope sign for another 150 years or so. That's the era of religion and belief, as opposed to science and reason. More about the Age of Pisces here:
